Launch of the BME Staff Network Group

The official launch of the BME Staff Network Group was held on the 24th February 2012 at Fulwood’s Mayfield Suite. The event was well attended with 45 delegates and the feedback we’ve received has been very positive. Although the event was only for half a day it still managed to fit in 6 presentations, a group discussion and a Q&A panel. Attendees were the first people to see some results from the recent online staff survey which saw responses from 440 staff, the presentation is here. Below are a series of images from the day:
